“The senior coalition Modern Centre Party (SMC) confirmed on Saturday another term for Miro Cerar at the helm of the party. The prime minister, who was the only candidate, was backed by 218 delegates, without a vote against or abstentions.

Cerar said after the vote in Maribor that the SMC would remain a unifying party and encourage cooperation in the country.

He is convinced the first step was made today towards making voters aware of the achievements of the SMC, which was no longer among the top 3 parties in recent polls.

‘I wish to take you to the general election feeling optimistic, full of energy, armed with our programme and the faith that we’ve done many good things,’ Cerar told a crowd of 370.” (Slovenia Times)

“The Foreign Policy Committee unanimously endorsed the draft letter with the elements of the lawsuit against Croatia for failing to comply with the arbitration ruling, which the government intends to send to the European Commission, after the closing session of the Committee by Prime Minister Miro Cerar. He announced that the letter will be sent to Brussels next week.

Foreign Minister Karl Erjavec, who is on a visit to the parliamentary foreign policy committee today, discussed the draft letter with elements of the lawsuit against Croatia for failing to comply with the arbitration ruling, which the government intends to send to Brussels, said that it expects the unity of its members. That also happened.

‘I expect all parliamentary parties to support the letter addressed to the European Commission,’ the minister said.” (translated from 24ur)
